“One value that I still hold on to is actually the quote UPH used to display on its entrance door saying, 'Responsibility Begins With Me'. A lot of people are picky about work these days: we tend to want an easy job, one that will give us profit quickly, and so on. However, I believe that in whatever is entrusted to me, I have to start taking responsibility for myself. I must be able to show that any given job can be completed quickly and well. The rest depended on an effective, efficient, honest work ethic and willingness to learn new things," Daniel says.
He is Daniel Moeis, UPH Architecture cohort 2005 alumni, currently working as Triniti Land's Marketing Director. Daniel is currently responsible for a 150 hectares property development at several parts of Indonesia including Jakarta, Tangerang, Batam, Bogor and Lampung. And with such a tall order at hand, he does not only need to hold his principles close, but also puts God and family first. Daniel admits that far greater than his career, he desires to make help others and make their life easier.
“I wanted to help others, yes. But with that, I also have obstacles to come over. The first obstacle lands upon my ability to give equal attention and time for each project in order for all to get the best results. I believe that previous and current projects alike deserved dedication. The second obstacle requires me to learn again, as it requires me to be able to bring these projects to compete in the online market. Especially with the pandemic at hand, face-to-face activities increasingly limited so it is important for us to figure out how to sell regardless of the time and place constraints,” explained Daniel. Daniel believes that his education at UPH has prepared him to give his best at his current career. For him, UPH did not only provided him with practical knowledge and a wide network support, but also opportunities to practice the soft skills that he still uses in his work today.
"There were a lot of memorable experiences during my time at UPH. One that came up to my mind immediately was the opportunity to join UPH Student Executive Board (BEM-UPH) and the UPH Student Representative Council (MPM-UPH). I learned a lot from these two organizational experiences, especially when I had to prioritize my coursework but still had to keep up with my commitment to contribute to these student organizations. Time management is indeed important and I still find it very applicable in my chosen career. Keep going UPH!” Daniel says enthusiastically.
